Northwestern comes up big with bases loaded to defeat No. 19 Nebraska, 10-2

Andrea Filler Andrea Filler had three hits Friday, driving in five runs with a pair of doubles.

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Northwestern's Emily Allard cleared the bases with a three-run triple in the second inning Friday, keying a 10-2 victory in five innings for the No. 23 Wildcats against No. 19 Nebraska in the first game of a Big Ten series.

A single, error and walk loaded the bases for Allard, who hit her second triple in as many games -- and Northwestern's fourth in its last two contests. However, Nebraska came back with a two-run homer by Hailey Decker one inning later to make it 3-2.

The Wildcats loaded the bases again in the bottom half of the third, and Andrea Filler cleared them with a double to push Northwestern's advantage to 6-2. Filler added a two-run double in the fourth, and Brianna LeBeau finished the scoring shortly thereafter with a two-run home run to left, her fifth homer of the year.

Kristen Wood (10-2) went the shortened distance, allowing two runs on four hits, three walks and seven strikeouts that give her 101 in 79 innings of work this season.

Northwestern improved to 19-6, 3-1 in the Big Ten. Nebraska is now 21-11, 1-3.
